Speaking to L’Équipe, Antoine Griezmann made it clear that he was unhappy with how he was treated when he first arrived at Barcelona.
“In France, I cannot complain, I have gained respect here. People who follow football know that I have done well wherever I go. In the national team, all the balls pass through me, I am more free, like I was at Atletico Madrid. At Barcelona, my start there was difficult and I found the criticism of me to be overstated. But in 2021, I feel that things are going better.”
